Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are a nervous bunch following their poor run in form, and their decline has made it obvious to the punters that serious work needs to be done this summer.
Whilst the Blues have stormed in the Premier League and FA Cup this season, the fans are expecting tougher times next season when the West London outfit return to the Champions League- and they’re keen to see the depth of their squad improved.
That’s why one report has gone down swimmingly, as The Sun claims Chelsea are on-alert as French outlet Le Parisien claim Blaise Matuidi is set to leave Paris Saint-Germain this summer after being disgusted by a new contract offer handed to him.
The new deal for the French international would have tied him to Unai Emery’s side until 2020 but he would have seen his wages halved – and he could be available for just £12m in the summer window.
Super-agent Mino Raiola has flaunted his client’s services to the Premier League and our landlord believes he’ll end up in English football, although he feels Raiola’s ties to Manchester United could see the Frenchman end up at Old Trafford.
The Chelsea supporting punters by the dartboard here in the Transfer Tavern think Matuidi and Kante would be a formidable partnership at the heart of the Blues midfield, and are urging Abramovich to secure a summer deal.
Would Matuidi be a good signing for Chelsea? Let us know in the comments below!
